The President's Stuck in the Bathtub : Poems about the Presidents

by Susan Katz; Robert Neubecker (Illustrator)


Playful political poems about the penchants and peccadilloes of the presidents!Sure, William Taft got stuck in his tub, but did you know that John Quincy Adams used to skinny-dip in the Potomac? Herbert Hoover spoke Chinese with his wife, and Gerald Ford had his name changed from Leslie Lynch King. It's true! In The President's Stuck in the Bathtub, the lives of the presidents are served up as fact-filled and fanciful poems that will make you laugh, cringe, and gasp with amazement at the colorful cast of men and women who have lived in the White House. With footnotes relating the facts behind the inspiration for each poem, and a section called "Presidential Notes and Quotes" in the back, this is one hilarious history lesson that kids will elect to read over and over again!
